The Bretton Woods Committee


by Alfred Adask


In A.D. 1944, an international conference was held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire to establish a new monetary system for the post-WWII world.  A fundamental principle of the resulting "Bretton Woods Agreement" was that the US dollar would be backed by gold and would come to be used as the world reserve currency.


In A.D. 1971, President Nixon closed the "gold window" and stopped redeeming foreign-held US dollars with gold.  Some people suppose that when the US dollar became pure fiat and was no longer redeemable in gold, the Bretton Woods Agreement ended.


However, in fact, the original Bretton Woods Agreement involved much more than merely promising to redeem foreign-held dollars with gold.  Vestiges of that Agreement continue to function and exert influence under the oversight of The Bretton Woods Committee.


According to that Committee's website,


"The Bretton Woods Committee is the nonpartisan network of prominent
global citizens, which works to demonstrate the value of international economic cooperation and to foster strong, effective Bretton Woods institutions as forces for global well-being.
"The Committee was created in 1983 at the suggestion of two former Treasury officials-Secretary Henry Fowler and Deputy Secretary Charls Walker, a Democrat and a Republican-who saw the need for an organized effort to ensure that leading citizens spoke about the importance of the international financial institutions

"Committee members are leaders at the top of the business, finance, academic, and non-profit sectors, including many industry CEOs, as well as former presidents, cabinet-level officials, and lawmakers who share the belief that international economic cooperation is essential and best served through strong and effective IFIs. Through the Committee, they champion global efforts to spur economic growth, alleviate poverty, and improve financial stability." 


Would you trust a group of men and woman who lived in the United States of America but who identified themselves as "prominent global citizens" to represent the best interest of the vast majority of the American people?  Would you trust that same group if they focused on building "international economic cooperation" and on supporting "

international financial institutions" rather than building national (American) economic strength?

Insofar as the 32 signatories to his letter are "prominent global citizens," are you and I also presumed to be "global [but not 'prominent'] citizens"? 


*  These "International Financial Institutions" (a/k/a "Bretton Woods Institutions"), ". . . were created in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire in 1944 during the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference. At the conference, member nations agreed to create a family of institutions to address critical issues in the international financial system."


These institutions include:  the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank Group, the International Finance Corporation, Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency, International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes, World Trade Organization, African Development Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the Inter-American Development Bank.  Their stated objectives are to "promote economic growth," "alleviate poverty," and "improve global financial stability".
That's quite an impressive lineup of "international financial institutions"-all under the influence of The Bretton Woods Committee. 


On reflection, The Bretton Woods Committee and its "family" of International Financial Institutions are at least close to, and almost certainly the foundation for, global governance and a New World Order


If so, that's more support for the "conspiracy theories" that the New World Order is primarily a coalition of banks and global bankers.   However, there's also a faint suggestion that the backbone of the New World Order isn't necessarily the world's Central Banks so much as the "International  Financial Institutions" operating under, or in association with, The Bretton Woods Committee.


*  On March 12th, A.D. 2014, The Bretton Woods  Committee sent a letter to Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The letter's purpose was to ask Congress to enact a new law to allow the US government to guarantee a total of $2.6 billion in loans to Ukraine.  A pristine copy of that letter can be downloaded from:

 Perhaps this letter's most impressive characteristic is the list of names associated with The Bretton Woods Committee and/or this particular letter:


2 Honory Co-Chairmen:  Presidents George Bush and Jimmy Carter


6 Former Committee Leaders:  Gerald R. Ford, Henry H. Fowler, Paul A. Volker, and others.


32 Signatories to this letter, including: Madeleine Albright, James Baker, Sandy Berger, Zbigniew Brezezinski, Frank C. Carlucci, Timothy Geithner, Alan Greenspan,  Henry Kissinger, Leon Panetta,  Henry Paulson, Condoleeza Rice, Robert Rubin, Brent Scowcraft, Lawrence H. Summers, three retired Generals,  and one retired Admiral. That's quite a collection of heavy hitters. 


The letter reads as follows:


"Dear Majority Leader Reid, Speaker Boehner, Minority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Pelosi:


"We write to urge Congress to maintain strong U.S. leadership in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) by enacting IMF quota reform legislation. For over 60 years, the IMF has been a principal tool for advancing U.S. national security and economic interests globally." 
The second sentence fascinates in that the Committee admits that a principal duty of The International Monetary Fund is to advance US national security and economic interests globally.  They're admitting that the IMF is little more than a puppet for the US government. 
"The immediate importance of a strong IMF role for countries in crisis is apparent now in Ukraine, which seeks help from the U.S. and IMF to maintain its independence and economic health, and to reduce its energy dependence on Russia.  Implementation of IMF quota reform would mean Ukraine would be able to borrow 60% more in rapid IMF financing (from $1B to $1.6B) than is possible today. Coupled with the U.S. $1 billion in new loan guarantees for Ukraine currently being considered by the Congress, Ukraine would have a total of $2.6 billion in emergency resources to draw upon to stabilize its economy. This enhances the geopolitical position of Ukraine's government in the current crisis with Russia."


The proposed "IMF quota reform" would allow Ukraine to borrow another $600 million (total $1.6 billion) from the IMF, based the US guarantee to make good on the loan, if Ukraine defaults.  These loans from the IMF would be in addition to the $1 billion in loan

guarantees already contemplated by Congress.

The Committee isn't asking the US gov-co to actually lend more currency to Ukraine.  Instead, the objective seems only to be to persuade the US government (which wields ultimate control over IMF activities) to guarantee and act as surety for whatever currency is lent by the IMF to Ukraine.   The Committee doesn't trust Ukraine to repay its loans, so the Committee is trying to protect IMF assets by getting the US to "co-sign" for those loans.  Thus, the Committee is not representing US interests, but is instead representing IMF interests.


*  The previous paragraph from the Committee's letter includes the word "stabilize".  In subsequent paragraphs you'll see six more variations on that word, including "stabilize," "destabilize," "instability," "stability".  I conclude that a principal goal of The Bretton Woods Committee (and perhaps the US and IMF) is to maintain stability and the status quo for the world's nations and economies.
If so, that's a very defensive and ultimately untenable position.  Whether the Committee and/or our government like it or not, the world is overrun by growing forces for change.  The Committee and/or our government may be trying to prevent that change by maintaining the status quo. That defensive posture implies that the elite want global stability in order to hold onto whatever power they have, in part because they can't acquire any more, and in part, because they fear loss of whatever power they've got.  They're trying to maintain an "orderly" financial system and suppress all evidence of instability.
I expect that most people in Europe and America would support maintaining stability.  But I'd bet that most people in Asia and the emerging markets would support destabilizing the current "global system" so as to grab a bigger slice of the global economic "pie".


*  In the final analysis, is political or economic instability really a bad thing?  Or, is it a natural part of life that's needed flush institutionalized corruption and imbalance out the system every so often? Good or bad, instability (like the poor) will always be with us.  But whenever any government or special interest fears instability, that's evidence that that government or special interest is losing power and fears losing even more.  "Law and Order" is not the mantra of the powerful.  It's the mantra of the weak who fear being overwhelmed by the forces of change.  If you're going to fight instability rather than take advantage of it as "opportunity," odds are you're going to lose and be left behind.


*  The object behind the new "IMF quota reform" is to increase the amount of currency Ukraine is able to borrow by increasing US guarantees that Ukraine loans will be repaid. 


Given that the US government recently defaulted on its treaty obligation to defend Ukraine against Russia, the value of a US guarantee of loans made to Ukraine wouldn't seem to be particularly valuable.  In fact, there's a good chance that lenders might laugh at the idea of lending money to Ukraine based on US guarantees.


More, what part of the U.S. Constitution instructs or empowers the U.S. gov-co to guarantee loans made to foreign countries in order to preserve that country's "geopolitical position"?  I know that the US gov-co has loaned currency to, and/or guaranteed loans on behalf of, foreign countries in the past.  But given America's current economic condition and our government's insolvency, wouldn't it be imprudent take on further debt obligations that might ultimately be imposed on the American people?


Wise or not, is it constitutional for our government to guarantee loans made by a third party to another nation's government?


"The IMF doesn't always get it right but it has been doing important work in countries for decades to stabilize their financial situation and put them on a path toward economic growth for decades.  This clearly serves our interests." 


Whose "interests" are being served?  Those of the American people?  Or those of the globalists represented by the "prominent, global citizens" of The Bretton Woods Committee?


"Advancing National Security Interests: The IMF is often the first responder of choice for the United States and our allies, to help countries prevent or manage financial crises before they destabilize an economy and give rise to conditions of economic stagnation, poverty, and political instability, which can embolden terrorism.  When Russia went to war with Georgia in 2008, the U.S-backed IMF $750 million emergency loan to Georgia countered the early financial fallout and kept our friend on a path of market-friendly economic policies. It was the IMF that stepped in to provide financial assistance to the former Eastern European countries after the fall of the Berlin Wall.  U.S -supported IMF loans helped stabilize Pakistan after 9/11, and have reinforced fragile economies such as Jordan, Tunisia and Morocco to help ensure our partners can focus on counter-terrorism cooperation and combating radical extremism. 


The phrase "National Security Interests" is a euphemism for "Government
Security Interests".  Our government's "national security interests" have little to do with protecting the nation or its people, but are primarily intended to protect the government.

Did the IMF loans help "stabilize Pakistan after 9/11"?  Or were those IMF loans used to bribe Pakistani officers and officials to maintain "market-friendly economic policies"? 
Are "market-friendly economic policies" conducive to supporting or diminishing each man's "unalienable Rights" as declared in our "Declaration of Independence"?  Or do such policies only increase the wealth and power of the globalists?


It's interesting that the Bretton Woods Committee seems to view "terrorism" and "radical extremism" as threats to "market friend economic policies" and "economic stability" rather than threats to people's lives or political systems.  Apparently, for that Committee, it's all about the money.  On the other hand, "terrorists" and "radical extremists" may be defined by the globalists as anyone who fights for national identity and against the idea of world governance and the New World Order. 


"Promoting U.S. Economic Interests:  In its role to promote the stability of the international monetary and financial system, the IMF consistently promotes a growth-oriented agenda based on open markets and strong macroeconomic and structural policies."IMF support to the Euro Area during the recent financial crisis lessened the global fallout and financial instability of highly interconnected economies, and forced long-needed structural reforms to begin to take place. The IMF was first responder to the Asian crisis in the late 1990s, and helped restore growth to Asian economies and create robust export markets for U.S. businesses, which supports American jobs." 
That's a bunch of crap.  Did the IMF's lending to Asia during the 1990s develop "robust export markets" for the USA?   If so, why are we still running substantial trade deficits with the world? 

How were "American jobs" "supported" by the IMF's lending to Asia over the past 20 years?   Isn't it true that many American jobs have fled this country to take up residence in China?


By lending money to foreign counties, did the IMF primarily create markets for American products?  Or did the IMF create foreign industries able to compete

against American industries and thereby cause the loss of American profits, jobs, high wages, and standard of living?


The proof is in the pudding.  Are Americans blessed with lower unemployment rates today than we had in the 1990s?  Are American wages rising or falling? Is the American standard of living rising or falling?


Has the IMF really worked in the best interests of the people of the United States?  Or has it worked against those interests?   The answer's obvious.  The Bretton Woods Committee's claims that the IMF works for the best interests of the people
of the United States are lies.

If it's true that the IMF has worked against the best interests of the American people, and it's known that the IMF is dominated, some say, controlled, by the US government, then it follows that our government has been working against the best interests of the American people for at least a generation.

"Implementing the IMF quota reforms negotiated by the United States in 2010 bolsters our leadership in the Fund without increasing the overall U.S. financial commitment.  It requires other countries to make additional financial commitments, effectively providing a larger and more stable source of financing that the U.S.-as the largest shareholder and only country with veto power over major IMF decisions-can leverage to continue to preserve our national security and economic interests abroad. A stronger IMF keeps emerging economies secured in the system we designed without sacrificing any of our influence."

We would therefore urge the Congress to continue its longstanding, bipartisan support of the International Monetary Fund for our national self-interest and for the good of the global system."


When the Bretton Woods Committee refers to bolstering "our leadership" and "our 
national self-interest" does the word "our" refer to the government of the United State, the people of the United States, or the "prominent global citizens" who comprise The Bretton Woods Committee? 


Similarly, who are the "we" in the phrase "the system we designed"-the US government, American people or the Committee's "prominent global citizens"?  


Whoever those authors may be, it's apparent that "the system we designed" is the current "global [fiat monetary] system". 


Knowing the identity of the "we" who designed that "global system" is important since that "we" will undoubtedly be the primary beneficiaries of that "global system".


Does this "we" include the American people?  Or is that "we" only the "prominent global citizens" composed of super-rich and/or high former government officials who are closely associated with The Bretton Woods Committee and/or similar organizations? 


Where does the U.S. Constitution grant powers to government, Congress or even "prominent global citizens" to "design" a "global system" and a New World Order that's paid for, in part or in whole, by the wealth or guaranteed loans of the People of The United States of America?


If the American people aren't part of the "we" behind this global system, they probably won't benefit from that system-but will they even be impoverished, oppressed and even enslaved by that "global system"?


The letter concludes with "Respectfully yours," followed by the signatures of 32 "prominent global citizens" who include: 


7 Secretaries of the Treasury:  Nicholas Brady, Timothy Geithner, Paul H. O'Neill, Henry Paulson, Robert Rubin, John Snow, Lawrence H. Summers, 


6 National Security Advisors: Sandy Berger, Zbigniew Brzezinski , Stephen J. Hadley, Henry Kissinger, Robert McFarlane, Brent Scowcroft 


4 Congressmen and/or Senators:  William Cohen, Lee Hamilton, Tom Ridge, Vin Weber 


4 Generals and/or Admirals:  Michael W. Hagee (USMC; Ret.),  Brent Scowcroft (USAF; Ret.), Charles F. Wald (USAF; Ret.), James M. Loy (USCG; Ret.) 


3 Secretaries of State:  Madeleine Albright, Henry Kissinger, Condoleeza Rice 


3 Secretaries of Defense:  Harold Brown, Frank Carlucci, Leon Panetta 


2 U.S. Trade Representatives:  Charlene Barshefsky, Carla Hills, 


2 Directors and/ or Deputy Directors of the CIA:  Frank Carlucci, Leon Panetta 


2 Private Bankers:  Timothy Geithner, Robert Rubin 


2 Homeland Security advisors:  Lee Hamilton, Tom Ridge 


2 Governors:  Bill Richardson (NM), Tom Ridge (PA) 


1 White House Chief of Staff:  James Baker 


1 Chairman of the Federal Reserve:  Alan Greenspan 


1 Secretary of Agriculture:  Clayton Yeutter 


1 Secretary of Health and Urban Development:  Carla Hills 


1 President of the World Bank:  Robert Zoellick 


I have little doubt that this list of names is a "Who's Who?" of the America's "prominent global citizens" and proponents of globalism and the New World Order.


I have much doubt that any of these "prominent global citizens" are working for the best interests of the American people.


So long as Americans remain indifferent to the forces of globalism, The United States of America is headed towards decline and possible national destruction.


1There are more than 32 offices included in this list because some of these "prominent global citizens" held more than one significant office and are therefore listed more than once.

European Central Bank's pledge yesterday to do some sort of quantitative easing, if necessary.   (No kidding....glad to hear things are getting better in the Euro zone)



The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced today the economy added a healthy $192,000 jobs in March. They were expecting $213,000

Government call it a milestone of the recovery...


This jobs recovery has been the slowest on record since the Labor Department started tracking the data in 1939.


The private sector data also misses an important piece of the puzzle: It does not factor in the growing population.


Average hourly wages fell in March with average hourly wages falling by one cent.   You have to rising wages to have any meaningful  recovery, as higher wages enable workers to spend more in an economy driven by consumer purchases.


The same goes for the broader measures of unemployment like the U-6 rate, which also includes folks who are working part-time but want a full-time job, and those who have given up looking for a job out of frustration. While that figure has also declined significantly from last year, it has been stagnant so far this year, and actually increased in March from 12.6% to 12.7%.


The average job growth we've seen in 2014 (178,000 per month) trails the job growth we saw last year (194,000 per month).



Mr. Williams shares the following with us all.

   March Payroll Jobs Increase of 192,000 Was Bloated Heavily by Concealed and Constantly-Shifting Seasonal Adjustments

Payroll and Unemployment Numbers Remain of

Horrendous Quality, Generally Not Comparable With Earlier

Reporting - March Unemployment: 6.7% (U.3), 12.7% (U.6), 23.2% (ShadowStats) -Year-to-Year M3 Growth Rose to 3.7% in March

$6 Billion Goes Missing at State Department

 By Brianna Ehley  reports for The Fiscal Times


The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors.

In a special "management alert" made public Thursday, the State Department's Inspector General Steve Linick warned "significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government's continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

The lack of oversight "exposes the department to significant financial risk," the auditor said.

Before Linick took office last fall, the State Department had been without an inspector general position for five years-the longest IG vacancy in the government's history, as noted in The Washington Post. 



Seeing the plunge in the 10 year yield is another indicator that investors are heading to the safety of Treasuries and out of riskier assets. (if you actually consider Treasuries safety.  One of the least riskier assets of course is Gold).

This all means the stock market is vulnerable to a major correction.

From Marketwatch

10-year Treasury yield death cross could signal bond rally

If you're partial to ominous-sounding technical financial terms, brace yourself for this one: The death cross is approaching.

You can put to rest fears about the grim reaper, but the implications of this indicator suggest you would do well buying bonds, according to analysis by Abigail Doolittle of Peak Theories Research, a technical analysis firm.

The death cross refers to the passage of the 50-day moving average through the 200-day moving average, suggesting a loss of momentum in the market. And it's not necessarily just bluster: It has been blamed for stock selloffs in the past. As Dootlittle points out, the 10-year Treasury yield's 50-day is very close to crossing the 200-day average, which suggests the yield may be poised to fall.

How to pump up your energy

by Herbalist Wendy Wilson 


There are several ways to increase the body's energy. You need to decide if the energy you want is more instant, sporadic and short-lived or if you want to build on your energy as if you took a time-release energy potion. Those who lean on caffeine and sugar for bursts of energy will not create energy endurance in the body. The body will learn to crave and demand those energy crutches to the point of dependency. Headaches, body aches, loss of concentration, mood flair-ups and being more tired are a condition of sugar and caffeine dependency. Too much caffeine can also increase risk of cardiovascular problems (constricts capillaries), stroke and anxiety. So, is there a healthier and smarter way to create and build more energy? Let's find out.



Most of us are drawn to foods that have great taste (salty or sweet), have texture, (crunchy or smooth & creamy) and are satisfying. Junk and fast foods often fits into these categories and we have to retrain the brain and the taste buds to prefer the energy foods which provide the nutrition the cells need. I'm not one to want to count calories but I do avoid the foods and beverages which provide the empty calories and create a metabolic dependency on starch and sugar. These will give the instant gratification and the energy burst however it is not long-lasting. For crunchy foods I would switch to an organic apple. The natural sugars in the apple will provide time-release energy, the fiber will improve bowel function and remove toxins faster and the pectin in the apple will help reduce the risk of digestive disease. For those hot summer days when you don't feel like eating try the fruit smoothie made with frozen peaches, blueberries or strawberries blended with a little crushed ice and almond or rice milk. You can add stevia or honey if you prefer a little sweetness. There are many fruits that are sweet enough to be considered a confection such as fresh pineapple. Keep the food combos basic without throwing on cream cheese, whipped cream or other dairy dips. You will do much better without the mucous those ingredients create inside the body. Mucous traps in toxins, burdens the body and slows the metabolism. If you are not a breakfast person, try the smoothie option and you can add in a few herbs for extra stamina such as spirulina, chlorella or ginseng.  



So, let's say you've changed the lifestyle and eliminated the trips to the drive through and the frozen convenience foods you put in the microwave and you still can't seem to get going, what then?  If you still have daydreams of a large caffeine beverage and a vending machine candy bar for energy, then I would look into a detox program. Good nutrition should power up the body and when it does not the nutrition is not getting into the body like it should. An accumulation of toxins can coat the system like layers of debris. This can block nutrition absorption and distribution. Do your homework on any detox program you consider and make sure the detox works with the body's natural elimination processes and won't overwhelm them. If you purge toxins too quickly or if you purge them from an area of the body that has no place to evacuate to, then you could make yourself sick. Always demand 100% certified organic ingredients in your detox products and no GMO's.



In order for the body to promote energy throughout the system you must not be dehydrated nor have edema. One way to avoid those two extremes is to have organic (not synthetic) minerals. Without the replenishment of water and minerals your nervous and muscular systems will suffer. Electrolytes are nothing more than minerals and water conducting electrical impulses via the central nervous system. Without them you could not think, move about or breathe. Organic sun-dried Celtic Sea salt is one of the best ways to replenish these minerals. Even livestock such as cattle have salt-licks in the pasture. Every living thing needs minerals and a majority of them are found in ocean salt. Our cell chemistry is closely related to ocean water. Make sure your salt is not artificially heated and is sun-dried to protect the minerals. The salt sold in stores has been artificially heated and is stark white. Whereas sun-dried salt retains the 84 micro-mineral elements and is light gray. After oxygen and water, minerals are next for the body to survive. Your salt and water balance one another and if you have the right organic minerals (and don't dehydrate with caffeine and alcohol) you most likely won't be dehydrated or have edema. Be careful if using a mined salt as it can also contain shale, which can clog kidneys.



As you already know, exercise on a regular basis breeds energy. If you have an occupation that is sedentary (you are parked behind a desk) you will need 30 to 60 minutes of regular exercise during the work week. Regular exercise can become boring so mix up the routine to include cardio, stretching and muscle toning. Those who make their exercise fun or have a work-out buddy stick with it and are more motivated to exercise. 



Another way to bless the body with more energy is to nullify the stress. Regular exercise will do wonders at helping to manage stress levels. Other therapies such as meditation are also helpful. Sometimes just reading a book in the late afternoon sun for an hour can power down stress. Herbs I like to use to reduce stress are; Cayenne, Valerian Root, Lobelia and St. John's wort. Organic vitamin B is also helpful especially for the nerves.



If you've noticed we've kept the approach basic, simple and within your power to accomplish. You don't have to rely on anything fancy or expensive to create long-lasting energy for your body. I will admit that our environment is more toxic than ever before and toxin removal will play a huge roll in boosting energy and overall health. Spring is a good time to begin toxin removal. System organ cleansing is not complicated and you can cleanse the bowel, urinary, prostate, kidneys, bladder, liver, gall bladder and blood and complete this (system organ cleanse) before the first day of summer.

The powers in government are at it again to control (harmonize) your nutrition and the US is bent on ushering in the Codex Alimentarius. Their new angle is the make changes to the labeling guidelines and the nutritional panel. The agenda is to reduce the RDA values on nutrients in supplements and foods. The changes won't happen right away.  These are proposed changes and are not final, yet. Secondly, the FDA is accepting comments from the public for a ninety-day period, which ends on June 2, 2014.  You should weigh in with your opinion, now.

Anyone who is opposed to this Proposed Rulemaking send their comments electronically to the FDA at!submitComment;D=FDA-2012-N-1210-0002 or in writing to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5360 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, Maryland 20852. Mention Docket No. FDA-2012-N-1210.


The National Health Federation has given us permission to use the following outline when communicating with the FDA on this very important issue:


"On Docket No. FDA-2012-N-1210, I am adamantly opposed to your proposed reduction of vitamin-and-mineral Reference Daily Intakes as shown in your Table 2, on page 11931.  At a time when toxin intake is increasing and nutrient intake is decreasing, Americans need more vitamins and minerals on a daily basis, not less. Your unsupported goal of harmonizing our food laws to Codex standards and guidelines has been specifically prohibited by Congress, and I demand that you obey the law and immediately withdraw Table 2 and all supporting paragraphs of your Proposed Rulemaking for revision in line with modern nutritional science, which shows that we need a higher daily intake of  B and other vitamins as well as more magnesium and other minerals such as selenium.  Please act immediately to correct your serious errors."


If people ignore this opportunity to be heard, the supplement industry will have two years to comply with the label changes and are estimated to cost more than $2 billion, which will be passed onto consumers like you. So, you will not only pay more for your supplements but they will contain less nutrition. Don't delay in fighting for your health and contact the FDA today.
